After all these years spent trying to get a new Terminator film off the ground, the first film in a planned new trilogy has started shooting. Skydance Productions posted the photo above of the first slate for Terminator: Genesis. It came along with the following message:
::SKYNET preparation routines complete.
::Initialization sequence complete.
::Reboot initiating in 03m00s.
The film is being directed by Thor: The Dark World's Alan Taylor, and it stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung-hun Lee, Michael Gladis, Sandrine Holt, and Laeta Kalogridis.
I really do like the cast of the film, and all of the rumors I've heard about the story have sounded cool. The idea is that it will weave together several ideas from the previous Terminator movies, and in the process give fans a fresh new story about Skynet's uprising and its plan to wage war on mankind.

The release date for the movie is July 1st, 2015.
